Poems and Poetry

Shop. A Poem by Guy Farmer

Shop, shop, everybody shop.
Buy, buy, everybody buy.
Acquire, acquire, acquire
Happiness through attic-filling stuff.
Silent indifferent objects
Slaking unmet needs.
Better, faster, shinier,
Now with more status.
Purchase me, purchase me,
A candle for the darkness.
